Available from 15 to 28 March, the menu consists of a six-course tasting menu, priced affordably at $75++ per pax, contemporary dessert curations and a lineup of Spring cocktails to commemorate the changing of seasons.

The tasting menu has been specially curated with Chef Janice, and the theme is to present a dining experience with a contemporary expression of art and food. Diners will start off with a warm and comforting Dobin Mushi that is made with a base of Katsuo dashi with the additions of kinmedai and spring vegetables. The savoury umami flavour balances out with the freshness of the vegetables, making this soup a highly palatable entry to the course meal. It will be followed by the Maple Iberico Pork Jowl served with a lentil bacon puree in which diners can enjoy the excellent texture and ratio of meat to fat. A citrusy palate cleanser, named Citrus on Wood, refreshes the tastebuds with a cardamom panna cotta at the bottom of the bowl with the tartness from the bergamot bubbles.

Perhaps my favourite and most surprising dish of the evening, the Nenrin will wow diners with the multiple layers of flavour, texture and temperature as on one side, you have a mushroom risotto and pan-seared foie gras, while on the other side, a burdock ice cream, with black garlic and salted caramel circling around the plate. You might think that the combination sounds farfetched and might not work out but put a bit of every single element of this plate onto a spoon, and you can truly understand why this dish is being highly raved about.

The meal concludes with the Kyoto Garden, constructed with an earl grey ice cream rock, orange blossom jelly and floral parfait, and the Ichigo of the Tochigi strawberries prepared four ways. All in all, an artful presentation and display of how different herbs, spices and ingredients can come together to create a masterpiece. What are you waiting for? Make a reservation today via email to [email protected] as there is a preorder of the menu items at least two days in advanced, with limited sets available per day.

💸 48 Hrs "Sanchoku" Short Rib: $50
💸 "The Best Back" Bundle- Best of both worlds: $45 (we chose mushroom pizza and 'brother from another mother' roll)

Serving up good quality and innovative dishes with strong Japanese and Korean influences, Akira Back has become one of our favourite restaurants!! The dishes that we tried truly surprised us in terms of texture and flavour.😍

Our most most favourite dish goes to the short ribs!! Don't be deceived by its unassuming presentation, the short ribs are the epitome of 'melt in the mouth'.🥩 After being braised for 48h, the beef was sooo tender and flavourful that we didnt even have to chew much! Such a pity that there were only 4 pieces, given its hefty price tag.😢

Our experience at Akira Back was nothing short of fantastic in terms of the food and service, and till this day we still miss the food greatly!👏 However, as it's quite expensive, we'll probably be coming back on special occasions.😊

The mushroom pizza's crust was thin and crispy while the mushroom was slightly crunchy and chewy.🍕 Together with the truffle oil drizzled on top, it was truly an explosion of flavours in our mouths.🎊

The 'Brother from another mother' roll had an interesting concept featuring both unagi and anago in a sushi roll. However, maybe due to the fact that there was too much going on, we couldnt really taste the unagi and anago.😕

This stylish restaurant at JW Marriott has been offering modern and creative reinvention of Japanese cuisine, and now they're offering dishes for takeaways.

The five dishes pictured are:
.
* Signature Mushroom Pizza ($20). This is Akira Back’s worldwide bestselling dish
.
* Ji-dori Chicken ($28). Juicy chicken breast, perfected through 8-hour cooking where the chicken was brined, sous vide and browned. Served on a bed of soft truffled potato mash
.
* Brother from another Mother ($25, or $45 for any 2 signature rolls). My second favourite dish here. It comprises of Unagi Kabayaki and Anago Tempura topped with shaved Foie Gras tourchon. To enhance it, dip this into the accompanied ponzu mayo.
.
* Green Monster ($23, or $45 for any 2 signature roll). A roll with the timeless combination of cream cheese and avocado.
.
* Baked Crab Hand Roll ($16). My favourite rolls here. It's wrapped with king crab and crispy onions, then given a spicy kick with a dynamite metai sauce.
